Our exciting plans to open an Emmaus community in the Potteries are moving forward.......
Our development work in Stoke-on-Trent began in late 2015 through our mentoring community at Emmaus Bolton who set up 12 years ago and are kindly offering their decade of invaluable experience to our local team.
Local support is essential to the success of this project. We established a steering group in May 2016 involving our Emmaus Bolton colleagues and representatives from key local organisations such as the North Staffs YMCA, Saltbox, and the Methodist Church.
An important step on our journey has been developing a working partnership with Furniture Mine to help breathe new life into the existing charity. This resulted in jointly opening a vast new second-hand furniture showroom at the Hanley store of Furniture Mine in early August 2017 - click here for more information.
The next step on our exciting journey is establishing the residential half of Emmaus Potteries - watch this space for more news on this!
